Monday is for Discussion
“Repentance, in all of its biblical fulness, is a passionate word, a dramatic word. It speaks to the notion of changing direction, radically changing direction—but it is more than that. It is a passionate word not only with regard to direction but because it includes the idea of sorrow, regret, perhaps even tears about the previous direction. Repentance biblically is a turning to God that recognizes the wickedness of what is turned from and the holiness of the One to whom we turn.”
—excerpt from yesterday’s message on Luke 3:1-22
Do we preach the gospel and pray for this response or teach what repentance is and call people to repent?
